St. George's Mushroom, Calocybe gambosa.

Calocybe gambosa, St. Geoge's mushroom.

Every year around this time a patch of grass in the park at Five Roads will offer up a small collection of Calocybe gambosa, and this year was no different. It is commonly known as St.George's mushroom because of its habit of arriving around St' George's Day every year (23rd April), and is supposedly a much sought after delicacy.


  1. Glad to know you have a regular 'patch' Colin. I must look at my regular patch on a public FPath, one border of Ffrwd Fen reserve.

  2. I've seen a couple of patches of these at pembrey park haven't tasted them yet though
